In December of 1798, Toussaint L'Ouverture, leader of the revolutionary government in the French colony of San Domingue, sent Joseph Bunel to Philadelphia to negotiate a trade agreement. Two months later, the Adams administration formally opened trade with a government led by African descendants. This marked the first and only time until after the Civil War that the United States traded with a government led by men of African descent.
